7mth old GSD with bad hind legs
My 7mth old German Shepherd puppy, Shady, has been having problems with her hind legs. Out of nowhere she started to get the shifting leg lameness.. so I am almost positive she had pano.
I talked to my vet and she said that was normal for her leg and to keep an eye on her. It got better in a weeks time.
All has been well, HOWEVER, now after she takes a long nap, she can barely use her hind legs to get up. They are very weak and she acts like she doesnt want to stand.
Also I noticed a clicking in her hind hips. Any advice (other then see my vet) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much! and SNuggle and love your german!! Total German Shepherd
: So sorry your German Shepherd puppy is having so many issues.
The clicking in the hip area you've described could be from arthritis
and yes that could be a real issue as to why your German Shepherd puppy
doesn't want to get up or has issues getting up after laying down for a while.
Another possibility could be Hip dysplasia
. Either way you're not going to know for sure exactly what the issue is until you take that little baby to the vet so that's what I would do.
Take that puppy to the vet asap to have it checked and be sure to tell the vet all about the issues you've described here and any others that the puppy may be encountering.
